Meet the Candidates

Alessandra Tropeano - Montreal

Title
A few years ago, I was invited to perform at the Light the Night walk and it was truly a meaningful experience. I decided to apply to the LLSC Man & Woman of the Year Campaign to lead a team of my own in order to raise funds for blood cancer. I dedicate my fundraising efforts to my grandfather and everyone else this cause has touched. xo

Title
Riccardo's decision to join this year's Man & Woman of the Year campaign stems from seeing first hand the impact the LLCS makes in an individual's life. Every 23 minutes another Canadian is diagnosed with a blood cancer and Riccardo is devoted to working with the LLCS to bring us all one step closer to our goal of ending cancer forever.
